Intestinal atresia is generally considered to result from mesenteric vascular disruptions during fetal life. This report describes an unusual case of ileal atresia, resulting from an omphalic ring closure anomaly and an omphalomesenteric duct (OMD) remnant. A 2-day-old male neonate presented with bilious vomiting and abdominal distension. At laparotomy, the distal portion of the atretic ileum was entrapped within the umbilical ring, causing volvulus of the proximal dilated atretic bowel around the fixed distal bowel at the omphalic ring. This case report supports OMD remnants as a rare, potential cause of jejunoileal atresia.
